Admission

Students must apply and be admitted before taking part in the Certificate in Applied Data Science (CADS) program.

Enrollment is currently limited to undergraduate students and is restricted to students with majors that are not traditionally data science focused. For this reason, students majoring in information science, computer science, or statistics are not eligible.

Eligible students should review the certificate program prerequisites and apply using the online form. Application deadlines are October 22 for spring enrollment and March 15 for fall enrollment. 

Once the CADS admission committee reviews the applications, accepted students will be notified via email.  

If you have questions, please email CADS@unc.edu.
